Crate & Basic Obedience Training - take home at ~9 weeks

Limited to 4 pups at a given time - 1st come, 1st serve (1st to deposit).


There are HUGE advantages to a crate-trained puppy.  First of all, you won't wake up or come home to poop or pee.  Your pup will be able to hold its bowels for up to 10 hours overnight. 2nd, housebreaking a crate trained pup is comparatively a breeze and typically only takes a week after going home because they are pre-trained to control their bowels.

Crate training & housebreaking a puppy is undoubtedly the hardest part of raising puppies.  We are one of the ONLY breeders that have the ability to successfully crate train your pup before they go home!  


Our family owns a large training facility in Effingham, Illinois where we maintain a 14' x 20' puppy nursery.  Your pup will be transported to our training facility by our family at no additional cost.  The puppy nursery is well kept and air-conditioned.   

Pups that are to be crate trained will go home 2 weekends later (estimate), at approximately 9 weeks.  The goal is to be completely crate trained so that they can hold their bowels overnight.  


We'll keep track of how your pup is doing and we'll keep you posted along the way.  (Typically you won't hear from us until week 2, when we start to see progress/success).  Be prepared that during the transition (after they go home), as they get acclimated to their new environment, it is normal for them to soil their crates (usually just the 1st night and typically pee only).  In order to maintain crate training, it is imperative that you get them to poop before bedtime.  How we do it at our house:  I run around the outside of our pen and they follow me and I just keep going back and forth until one by one they all start to squat down to go poop and pee.  If your pup is not pooping before bed, you will have accidents. 


Pups that are here for crate training that stay the full 2 weeks may receive a free 9 week "all in one" vaccination, a $95* value, plus another free Comprehensive De-Worm & Deparasite if needed, a $60* value.


**Please note that we do not guarantee results.  While almost all the pups we train go home and have zero accidents in their crates overnight, there have been 2 pups so far that continue to soil their crates.  At our training facility, they have their littermates to keep them active, get them to romp around (exercise helps them poo), and follow their lead for going poop.  What we've learned in trying to help the clients afterward is that both pups are NOT going poop before bed. You cannot put them to bed until they've gone poop or they will soil their crate.  If you are having trouble afterward, you can try these troubleshoots:

1) add 1-2 cubes of sweet potatoes to their meals (contains a lot of fiber)

2) although you are not supposed to go for organized walks until they are 12 weeks in age, starting to take them on an organized walk for 15 minutes should do the trick in conjunction with the sweet potatoes (you can buy canned cooked sweet potatoes at Wal-Mart).


All Obedience Training will utilize Clicker Training

Clicker training is often used for service animals because it has proven to speed up the pup's ability to learn new & more complex concepts such as crossing the street as a guide dog.  Clickers are included with The Complete Package Training kit.  


No Guarantee of Training Accomplishments

Please note that we do not guarantee mastery of any command or make a warranty or claim that your pup will learn all of the commands.  While most pups will go on to learn the majority of the commands that come with each training segment, we cannot force your pup to learn faster than they are capable.  Especially with service training - depending on how difficult a specialized task, we may not be able to master it in the given training segment.  If we have space available, you are welcome to opt-in for any next step training.


Basic Obedience Training 

Your assigned trainer will work with your pup on a daily basis, many times throughout the day.  The Daily Goal is initially 2-3 minutes every hour, 7-8 times a day, M-F.  As training continues, each session gets longer, up to about 7-8 minutes per session.  Your pup will initially master most if not all of the 11 basic obedience commands:  Sit, Stay, Down, Stay Down, Come, Up, Off,  Heel, No, OK, and Follow Me.  We use positive reinforcement, lures, and the distract/redirect training methods outlined on our Training page and videos page, playing with them in between training sessions to keep it fun.   Upon completion, your assigned trainer will walk you through each of the commands to demonstrate what they've learned.  You get to choose your method: in Person, Facetime, Zoom, Skype etc.  Please note that you will need to continue to reinforce the training learned after they go home and increase the distraction setting as you go, for several weeks until it is well set in their minds.  At the end of each day - during their last training session of the day - your assigned trainer will record and send you a video of your pup performing all of the commands they have learned up until that point.  It's fun and amazing to watch your pup learn the 11 basic obedience commands!  The videos are also useful because you will get a grasp on how to handle / what to do when your pup becomes distracted or isn't staying on task.  We will also send home instructions on how to reinforce each command including hand gestures, and how to increase the distraction settings so that eventually your pup will be able to perform all commands in a high distraction environment such as a store or public place.


At the conclusion of Basic Obedience Training, your pup will receive a certificate of basic obedience training.     If you are continuing advanced obedience training with us, we will invite you to visit your pup when possible, by appointment only and go over all of the commands with you upon completion at each level whether in person, skype, facetime, zoom etc.


Basic Obedience Video below with a Lab pup "Star" - before we started to use clicker training - our 1st graduate!  We have now increased/improved our training even more and will continue to improve as we continue.  Here is a link for our Facebook page for 2 puppies currently in training for Basic, Advanced, then Public Service.  You can view daily updates to get a feel for what you can expect.  (The videos don't show Focus, Front, or Follow Me as we added them after these training).















Continued Crate Training, House Training + Advanced Obedience - take home at ~11 weeks 

Available to pups that have completed Crate & Basic Obedience Training ONLY.  Your assigned trainer will continue to crate your pup overnight during House & Advanced Training.  Limited to 4 pups at a given time - 1st come, 1st serve.  ​House + Advance Obedience Training is only available for pups immediately after they have received Crate & Basic Obedience Training provided by us and is an additional 2 weeks long.  


The goal of Advance Obedience Training is:  To master the 11 basic obedience commands in a medium to high distraction setting and be ready for the AKC Good Citizens Test.  During Advanced Obedience Training your trainer will continue to reinforce the basic obedience training they have already received, moving it to a medium distraction environment during week 1 of Advanced Obedience Training, and then to a moderately high distraction setting during week 2.  Adding on "Speak" & "Quiet" Commands (when possible).  At the end of each day - during our last training session of the day, we will record and send to you a demonstration of everything they have learned up to that point.  


At the conclusion of Advanced Obedience Training, your pup will receive a certificate of advanced obedience training.  In addition, you will receive daily videos which you can use to document your pup's training which you will need to keep on record if your goal is a bona fide service dog.  At the conclusion of training, your assigned trainer will walk you through every single command to make sure that you are able to successfully perform each command correctly to ensure continued success at home.  If you are continuing training with us, we will invite you to visit your pup (when possible, by appointment only) and go over all of the commands with you whether it be in person, via Facetime, Zoom, Skype etc.   During the 2nd week of Advanced Obedience, Below is a video of our 1st Advanced Obedience Graduate, Luna.  The video does not show Speak or Quiet as we added those after these training.


House Training - Take-Home Determined on Total Training
House Training is available to pups during any advanced training. If your pup is staying for a service training, it will likely be done during the service training portion of your pup's stay instead of the advanced training portion or depending on space/room for given time period.  We will continue to crate your pup overnight during training.  We will consult with you to determine the best method to house train your dog given your own house, environment, and schedule.  For example, if you don't have a doggy door, how do you want your pup to notify you when he/she has to use the bathroom?  Jingle a doorbell?  Paw at your leg? Bark by door?  Sit by door?  If you live in an apartment your professional trainer can train your pup to use a slide-in doggy door that leads to a small patch of turf on your patio with a potty pad underneath for easy collection/disposal. 

















Public Service Dog Training with Service Registration*, ID*, and Vest + Go Pee + Under.  Take home at ~13 weeks 

Available to pups that have completed Advanced Obedience Training ONLY.  Limited to 2 pups at a given time - 1st come, 1st serve.  ​Public Service Training is only available for pups immediately after they have received Advanced Obedience Training through us and is an additional 2 weeks long.  During your pup's public service training, your pup will continue to be crate trained overnight and reinforce everything they have learned so far.  


At the onset of Public Service Training, your pup can become registered as a General Service dog.  You can also receive a Service ID card with a vest attachment holder.   At the conclusion of your pup's Public Service Dog Training, your pup will get to keep their service animal vest that they will wear during outings as well as a certificate of Public Service Dog training.  Your pup will also be entered into a General Service Dog Registry and you will receive their Service ID Badge & Badge Display to wear on outings.  In addition, you will receive daily videos which you can use to document your pup's training as a bona fide service dog.    Before your pup goes home, I will walk you through every single command to make sure that you are able to successfully perform each command correctly to ensure continued success at home.   If you are continuing training with us, we will invite you to visit your pup (when possible, by appointment only), whether it be in person, Skype, Facetime, Zoom etc. During Public Service Training, your trainer will be taking your pup out to public place.  Your trainer will teach your pup to "Go Pee" before entering buildings and how to lay "Under" tables during lunch/coffee etc.  By the time Public Service Training is over, your pup will be well acclimated to traveling in a crate (staying quiet and often using it as nap time), loud noises, busy places, crowds, other animals, and most importantly, how to focus & obey you in a high distraction environment.


Pups that stay for Public Service Training may receive, for free, their 12 weeks "all in one" vaccination + a free Certified Rabies Vaccination while in our care - a $190* value.
